The inspiration behind Fetty Wap's "Trap Queen" didn't just come out of nowhere...she's actually his ex-girlfriend.

"She was a different kind of loyal," he told Complex about his former ladylove. "If you had to go jail, it was cool as long as you were going to jail together. I don't think I've ever met anybody else like that. I first met her at her job, and the way that I introduced myself, she didn't like it. I didn't really do it in the most respectful way. I was like, "What do you want me to say? Do you want me to say 'Hey, what's up, hello' to you? Does that sound better?"

"The next day I went back to her job, and she was my trap queen from then on," he continued. "The song is a hood love story. My manager sent me the beat, and as I was listening to it, I knew. I kept listening to it. Even when I went to bed, I never stopped listening to it."

Even though they're no longer together, they still keep in touch and Fetty – who didn't reveal his ex's identity - makes sure she has everything she needs. Which is sweet, considering the song she inspired not only went double platinum, but also launched him to mega success.

"I don't think I'll ever meet anybody like my ex ever again," the New Jersey rapper said. "She's doing good now. She's in school. She's doing what she has to do. With the money that we made — and the money that I'm making now and everything that's going on for me — it's only right that I help her. Even though we're not together, I still make sure that she's good."

Fetty is nominated for two MTV Video Music Awards for "Trap Queen" for Best Hip Hop Video and Artist to Watch, and made Billboard history this month when he landed four songs in the top 10 of the Hot Rap Songs chart. The hip hop star is also set to release his debut album September 25.
